Too Much?

There are about 3 things that I want to do next week, all within a span of about 72 hours of each other.  I'm concerned that it is too much.  That I'm too old to pull it off.  Let me lay it out to you.  This is what I already firmly have planned...

Thursday, October 28th, I'm planning to go to Canton for the Trade Days.  We will probably leave at 8ish and get home late afternoon/early evening.

Saturday, October 30th, I'm going to College Station for the Tech vs. A&M football game.  I'm meeting Abby & Brian down there for the game.  They haven't announced the game time yet, but more than likely, we are going on Saturday morning and will spend Saturday night...though there is the possibility that we will go spend Friday night instead.  The TBA status of this game is holding me up on whether the 3rd thing I  want to do is viable or not.

What's the third thing?

Noneother than Ryan Star!  Ryan is coming back to Dallas on Friday the 29th. You know I would normally jump at that, but I'm worried about a couple of things...
(1) I may not even be in town if we decide to go to College Station on Friday night.

(2) If I am in town, I may have to leave before the crack of dawn on Saturday morning.

(3) Ryan won't take the stage until probably at least 10, which means that I will get home late. I'm driving down by myself, so I may have to investigate the possibility of a caffeine iv for driving purposes.

(4) I don't think I have a soul that will go with me to the concert. I think I've tapped out my friends able and willing to go. Not that I'm about to let that really stop me.

So I don't know. Do you think I can take that much excitement in the span of 72 hours, or am I too darn old to pull it off?

Sounds fun! I mean heck why not do it all if you can! If you need a friend to attend the Star with you, call me up. I have heard he is pretty good (hum wonder where I heard that??) Life's no fun if you don't rush around right?

Swiss Oatmeal {Copy Cat Recipe}

I'm obsessed with Swiss Oatmeal.  I particularly love  Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.  If you are not familiar with Swiss Oatmeal, it is a cold oatmeal cereal with fruit and nuts.

I've had a similar recipe for years, but it was only similar.  It wasn't close enough for my liking.  So I finally set out into the land of Pinterest to find a recipe that was a good Copy Cat.  I found a few, combined them and came up with what I think is a very close Copy Cat Recipe of Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.

Here's what I do (note, this recipe is really just pictures, because I don't really have measurements for these things.  The photos aren't great, but it's easier if I show you what I do)...

Here's the Phase 1ingredients... Milk Honey Yogurt (I use a vanilla greek yogurt) Oats (old fashioned, not quick...you probably could do steel cut too)  I've simplified this to where you only need a bowl and a spoon for Phase 1 because I use my yogurt cup as a meas…

It's all about the dress...

I mean I guess it's really all about getting married, but come on, you always anticipate the dress right?  Well holy moly folks!  Today a big secret was released to the press.  No, we still don't know which dress or tiara Kate will be wearing, but we heard for the first time that Princess Diana had a back-up dress!  Here are some of the pictures and sketches...

And you know what?  I like the back-up dress better than the one she wore!  I know, I know.  I'm going to get blasted for saying that, but I'll just confess it right now... My name is Kara and I've never thought Princess Diana's dress was all that and a bag of chips.  Nope.  Not my favorite Royal Wedding Dress by any stretch of the imagination.  What is my favorite?  Probably the one that Sarah Ferguson wore when she married Andrew...
It had beautiful beading and stitching throughout.  Also on the train it had an "A&quo…

Pumpkins, Gourds & Flowers, oh my!

Yesterday, I went to the Dallas Arboretum.  Lisa, Jennifer, and I went as my birthday outing.  We got a late start due to some court delays, so we stopped for lunch first.  I needed some make-up too, so we went to Neimans.  We ogled some purses, had lunch, I got some make-up and then we headed out to the arboretum (in the rain).

It was raining pretty good on the way over, but luckily, we only needed umbrellas for a few minutes.  Thankfully the sun never came out, because it was so humid, I'm pretty sure we would have melted. 




First, we made our way toward the Pumpkin Village...

I love how they made garland out of the mini-pumpkins...






These rose bushes were just stunning!  The roses on each bush varied in color from a coral, to a blush, to a purple hue...
It was Fall at the arboretum, and pumpkins, gourds, and mums are a large part of the visit.  However, they also have a Chihuly art exhibition going on.  I took so many pictures, I HAVE to make that it's whole separate post.  …
